Woman severely injured by N-Judah train

A woman was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries after being struck by a Muni train at the intersection of Judah Street and 30th Avenue, just one block away from where a pedestrian was dragged to death by a train six months earlier.

Police officials are still investigating how an N-Judah light rail vehicle struck the woman, who was waiting at the outbound stop on Judah and 30th.  The woman, whose identity has not  yet been released, was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital after the incident at 8:51 a.m.

The driver of the train was tested for drugs and alcohol and placed on administrative leave, which is the standard protocol for operators, according to Judson True of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority.

Bus service replaced the light rail line for the western portion of the N-Judah’s route for about 50 minutes following the accident.  Full service was restored at 9:42 a.m., according to Muni reports.

On January 17, 40-year-old Mark Callaghan was struck by a Muni train on 31st Avenue and dragged three blocks on Judah Street to 28th Avenue.
